Dr Peter Robinson awarded Honorary Fellowship

We are excited to announce that Dr Peter Robinson has been awarded a Honorary Fellowship from the Waikato Institute of Technology (Wintec) for his longstanding contribution to science.

Peter has been recognised alongside three other Waikato leaders in the fields of media arts, sport and health.

Wintec awards fellowships, degrees and medals to people who have made a significant contribution to Wintec, the region or the nation through innovation in industry or business, scholarship and research or enhancing New Zealand society.

Peter says he was “totally surprised and felt very honoured” when told of being awarded an Honorary Fellowship from Wintec.

“I have always had an interest in education which was well rewarded during my time at Wintec. The science we taught is used in many areas and my special interest in the environment has allowed me to work with other scientists to develop standards and methods aimed at measuring and improving our environment, and to pass my knowledge on to younger people.”

Congratulations Peter, we are proud to have you as part of our team!
